This older motel is right on the beach. We have a two bed efficiency we every thing we need ! It is more cabin rustic, but for the price , I'm fine with that ! The management is very nice. Dolphins were swimming so close to the beach, the pool is clean, the room is quiet. Completely happy for the... More

We decided at last minute to stay one night in Nags Head for much needed getaway. We stayed here 25 years ago with our sons who were very young and my husband was building a dental practice and couldn't take a week off. When I called,the gentleman was so helpful. Though we couldn't get a Fri-Sun rm. he had a... More

This by far was the best trip I have been on in many years. Loved this motel, for its retro feel. Not fancy but clean and convienent to restaurants and of course the beach. I will be returning next summer.

We stayed here for a night and had a great time. Booking the room was easy and the staff member i spoke to was very helpful as i asked about rooms for 3 families. The pool was clear and the shallow attached kids pool was a nice surprise. We had room 4 next to the office and it had 2... More

We stayed at the Sea Foam in July of 2014. We had a great time! It's a blast from the past!! Rarely do you find a family owned, family oriented motel that is clean and well maintained. But this is it! Our door opened up right onto the sand dunes, where the kids played in the sand. We loved sitting... More

We stayed here and had a great time. It was a rainy weekend, but we still enjoyed ourselves. It is near the beach (we can see it from our room), has an outside shower for self and feet along the path from the beach to the hotel, and has many amenities: Pool, shuffleboard, Cornhole, coffee, free wifi, etc. Our room...

We have been staying here for 4 years now and my grandkids won't stay anywhere else. We have met so many nice families staying there. We enjoy the laid back feeling, never rushed and don't even feel like we have to lock the door. We have always had great service from the front desk and the housekeeping staff. Only wish... More

We decided to stay in town for a second night and the Travelodge we had been at the night before was full. This was one of the cheapest mom and pop motels with a vacancy so we checked it out. The room was located on the second floor in the front corner facing the parking lot. We could have had... More

We've just returned from a two night stay, and wish we would have booked another. Sea Foam isn't a new motel, but it shows its age gracefully and has so much character. From our enclosed balcony we had a perfect view of the beach, and screen doors on either end of the room allow for a constant breeze. In the... More

My daughters and I reserved a room at the Seafoam in August 2013 based on photos and speaking with staff by phone. When we arrived we were disgusted and freaked out. The place was extremely run down, in need of every possible update. We were too tired to look elsewhere and decided to try it for one night. We slept... More
